Moves and techniques[]

Sonic the Hedgehog is the main and titular protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. He is a mobian hedgehog endowed with the power of super speed and the ability to control the Chaos Emeralds. Renowned as the hero of his world, Sonic has stood as the primary opposition to the villainous reign of the evil Dr. Eggman and the Eggman Empire for years. He is the strongest and the primary agent of the Freedom Fighters, a generation of heroes whom he inspired with his unyielding heroism and continues to be their source of strength to this day.

Sonic's speed is his ultimate weapon and he has used it to help those in need, as well as foil his enemies' plans. Although he is sometimes overconfident and assumes he can deal with things on his own, Sonic also realizes he has friends to back him up when needed. Additionally, he is willing to put his life on the line for his loved ones.


Super SonicEdit[]

Super Sonic, from Sonic the Hedgehog #275.

By absorbing the seven Chaos Emeralds, Sonic can transform into Super Sonic. While in this state, his natural talents are not only increased exponentially, but he is also granted the ability of flight, invulnerability and can as well manipulate Chaos energy to his will.

Sonic the WerehogEdit[]

Main article: Sonic the Werehog (Archie)

When Sonic accidentally inhaled a concentrated dose of Dark Gaia Energy, he unwillingly gained the ability to transform into Sonic the Werehog, a mutated version of his original form. In this form, Sonic is granted increased strength, elastic arms and sharp claws. However, the corruptive influence of the energy initially caused him to become extremely violent and aggressive. However, he soon learned to exert control over himself in this form. When exposed to sunlight, he automatically reverts back to normal.

Sonic ManEdit[]

Main article: Sonic Man (Roboticized Master)

When he was subjugated to Dr. Eggman and Dr. Wily's specialized roboticization procedure, Sonic was turned into the Roboticized Master Sonic Man. In this form, though deprived of his free will, Sonic can overwhelm several Robot Masters at once, and his speed is so greatly enhanced that time-slowing powers have no noticeable effect on him. He can also use a variety of Special Weapons.
